Mayor's "Navy Day" Proclamation. 

The City Clerk presented the following proclamation, 
which was ordered published and placed on file: 

Office of the Mayor, 7 
Chicago, October 24, 1922.) 

To the People of Chicago, Greeting: 

The Executive Committee of the Navy League of 
the United States has set apart Friday, October 27, 
A. D. 1922, as a day to be known as "Navy Day" to 
be observed throughout the country with appropri- 
ate ceremonies. 

The Navy primarily is an insurance against war. 
It is an ever-ready agency of help in times of need. 
The great service rendered by the Navy of the 
United States in every war in which we have been 
engaged is an excellent illustration of its ever-con- 
stant readiness to assist where needed. 

Our country is a republic. The Navy belongs to 
its people, and the people of the country should be 
informed as to what their Navy is doing for them. 

The American Navy has a splendid record of which 
our people may justly be proud. It has been a potent 
factor throughout its history in preserving peace. 

Therefore, I, Wm. Hale Thompson, Mayor of the 
City of Chicago, in conformity with the action of 
the Executive Committee of the Navy League of the 
United States, do hereby designate Friday, October 
27, A. D. 1922, as "Navy Day" and request that 
this day be observed by our citizens with appropri- 
ate exercises, and that the American flag be displayed 
upon municipal buildings. 

I urge our people to display the American flag. 

(Signed) Wm. Hale Thompson, 

Mayor.

Advancement of Second Class Patrolman Joseph M. 
McNamara for Meritorious Services. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion: 

Office of the Superintendent of Police,] 
Chicago, October 23, 1922. J 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — At about 6 o'clock p. m. October 



4, 1922, Second Class Patrolman Joseph M. McNa- 
mara, 11th District, detailed to the Detective Di- 
vision, was standing on the rear platform of a south- 
bound State street car, and at 31st street four col- 
ored men got on the car whom he recognized as pick- 
pockets. They were blocking passengers on the 
platform, and the officer seized one of them and 
shoved him to one side of the platform, then reached 
over and got hold of two more of them. The fourth 
man started to get off the car, but the officer blocked 
him and he started through the car. The officer, 
seeing he was unable to handle but two of them, 
took one, named Louis Rivers, whom he knew, and 
another off the car at 32d and State streets. He 
walked them to a patrol box at 33d, and just as the 
officer opened the door of the box to call the wagon 
both these men jerked away. Rivers running east on 
33d street towards the elevated line and the other 
man north on State street. The officer pursued Riv- 
ers, and when he refused to halt, fired at him, 
wounded him twice and captured him. Rivers was 
removed to the Provident Hospital for emergency 
treatment, and while there the other man who had 
fled from the patrol box called to see how badly 
Rivers was injured, and the officer who was in the 
hospital apprehended this man also, who gave the 
name of Fred Horace. 

This officer was on his furlough at the time of the 
above occurrence. 

I consider it a very good piece of police work on 
his part, and I respectfully request that authority 
be granted to me to advance him from second to first 
grade. 

Respectfully, 
(Signed) Charles C. Fitzmorris, 

Superintendent. 
Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
an order submitted with the foregoing communication,

BOARD OF EDUCATION. 



Report of Activities of the Board of Education sance 
July 12, 1922. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was ordered published and referred- to the 
Committee on Schools, Fire and Civil Service: 

Board of Education,] 
Chicago, October 26, 1922. | 

To His Honor the Mayor and the Honorable the City 
Council, City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I desire to present herewith a re- 
port of the work don.e by the Board of Education 
since my election as President on July 12 last. 

Eor years it has been customary to recess the Board 
during the summer school vacation months, so that 
the members of the Board might have their annual 
vacations. This year this was not done, as you will 
notice by the record of meetings and committee 
meeting attached hereto. 

During the period from July 12 to the present 
date there have been thirteen regular meetings of 
the Board held at which a quorum was present and 
all work before the Board was disposed of. There 
were twenty-nine formal committee meetings held 
with quorum present. I am not including in these 
figures one recessed and one regular Board meeting 
during the last two weeks, these being the only regu- 
lar or called meetings at which there was no quorum, 
but in each instance where a quorum was not pres- 
ent, at either a Board or committee meeting, a re- 
cess was taken to an early subsequent date. 

It has for years been the custom' for the Board 
of Education of Chicago to have meetings every two 
weeks. As you will note by these figures, this 
Board, during the period mentioned, has had an 
average of one Board meeting a week at which a 
quorum was present. In the interim between Board 
meetings committees have met and acted upon all 
matters referred to them by the Board with the ex- 
ception of the trial of certain suspended employes. 

I desire to let your Honorable Body know a few 
of the things which have been accomplished by the 
Board in addition to keeping the current work up 
to date. 

1. Making the 1922 budget. 

2. Making complete rules governing the entire 
school system, with the exception of new rules for 
the Bureau of Finance, which are held in abeyance 
pending recommendations by Mr. E. E. Gore. 

3. The appointment of an Advisory School Plan 
Commission which has had three meetings and is 
now studying some of the larger problems which 
confront the educational system of this city. 

4. Distribution to each of the public schools of 
its quota of 1,223,885 free text books. 

5. Adoption of a comprehensive three-year 
building program. 

6. The completion of two school buildings in 



time for the opening of school, with a seating ca- 
pacity of 1800 children. 

7. The practical completion of six new buildings 
which will be ready for occupancy December 1, ac- 
commodating 5,700 children. Five other buildings 
are under construction, these having a seating ca- 
pacity of 8,500. 

8. The completion of plans for two school build- 
ings on which bids have been advertised for or re- 
ceived. These represent a seating capacity of 1750. 

9. Plans are in course of preparation for nine 
buildings, with a seating capacity of 14,060. These 
are being pushed as rapidly as possible to comple- 
tion, and others planned for under our three-year 
building program. 

10. Tlie letting of a five-year contract for new 
buses for crippled children at a saving of $100,- 
000.00. 

11. During the period from July 12 to date a com- 
plete inventory has been made of the supply de- 
partment in which there were $450,000.00 worth of 
supplies. Incidentally, this inventory showed but 
$802.81 discrepancy. An inventory of the repair de- 
partment is now being made. 

12. The Board has authorized a perpetual in- 
ventory in these and other departments. 

, 13. The authorization by the Board of a per- 
petual month-to-month audit, and the checking of 
same by certified public accountants. 

14. The working out of a new plan for auto- 
mobile transportation, which we believe will effect 
a material saving. 

15. The Board has authorized the budgeting of 
the 1923 building fund, upon which we are now 
working. As far as we are able to learn, school board 
building funds have never been budgeted by any 
city in the United States. 

16. The letting of contracts for the winter's sup- 
ply of coal on a B. T. U. basis, at $2.00 per ton less 
than the present market. 

17. The adoption of a new system of letting con- 
tracts, in order to further safeguard such transac- 
tions and give them wider publicity. 

18. In our committee meetings we have given 
every citizen an opportunity to be heard if he so de- 
sires. 

All of the work mentioned has been done under a 
stress of circumstances heretofore unknown to the 
Board of Education and its employes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) John Dill Robertson, 

President.

fined asphalt shall yield, upon ignition, not more than 
fifteen (15) per cent of fixed carbon; if ninety-nine 
(99) per cent or more of the said refined asphalt is 
soluble in carbon tetra chloride, it shall yield, upon 
ignition, not more than eighteen (18) per cent of 
fixed carbon. When forty (40) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box two and 
one-quarter (2%) inches in diameter and is held at 
a temperature of three hundred and twenty-five 
(325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it 
shall have lost not over five (5) per cent by weight 
and the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
be not less than one-half of the penetration before 
such heating, said penetration being determined as 
herein prescribed. The said refined asphalt shall 
have a ductility of thirty (30) centimeters at five 
(5) millimeters penetration determined as herein 
prescribed, said ductility being determined by elon- 
gating a briquette, Dow form, of said refined asphalt 
at a uniform rate of one centimeter per second at a 
temperature of seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement may

State Closed Oil Tester it shall not flash below a 
temperature of three hundred and fifty (350) de- 
grees Fahrenheit; and when twenty (20) grams of 
the said paraffin residuum fiux is heated in an un- 
covered tin box two and one-quarter (2%) inches 
in diameter and is held at a temperature of three 
hundred and twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit 
for five (5) hours, then it shall not have lost over 
five (5) per cent by weight. The said semi-asphaltic 
residuum flux shall have the same general char- 
acteristics as the said paraffin residuum flux, except 
that it shall have a specific gravity of ninety-four 
(.94) hundredths to ninety-eight (.98) hundredths

Fahrenheit, as compared with water at seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and it shall have a 
viscosity coefficient, at two hundred twelve (212) 
degrees Fahrenheit, of less than sixteen (16) com- 
pared with water at sixty-eight (68) degrees Fahren- 
heit, as determined with an Engler viscosimeter. 
The said asphaltic residuum flux shall have the same 
general characteristics as the said paraffin residuum 
flux, except that it shall have a speciflc gravity of 
ninety-eight (.98) hundredths to one and ten (1.10) 
hundredths at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit, as compared with water at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and shall 
have such properties that when the said asphaltic 
residuum flux is evaporated, at a temperature of not 
to exceed five hundred (500) degrees Fahrenheit, to

shall contain equal parts of each of the refined as- 
phalts and that the said asphalt cement shall contain 
at least fifty (50) per cent, by weight, of refined as- 
phalt or asphalts. Asphaltic or semi-asphaltic flux 
shall be used when the weight of flux required in 



making the asphalt cement prepared from refined 
native, solid asphalts exceeds by weight twenty-five 
(25) per cent of the asphalt cement. The said as- 
phalt cement shall be made by mixing and heating 
the said refined asphalt and the said fiux in a kettle

washed gravel or crushed limestone or crushed gran- 
ite, of varying sizes that will pass through a ring of 
one and one-half (1%) inches internal diameter and 
be held on a ring of one-fourth (%) of an inch inter- 
nal diameter. The cement and torpedo sand or mater- 
ial equal thereto shall be mixed thoroughly and then 
moistened with water to form a mortar, into which

parts torpedo sand, which, after being moistened 
with water to form^ a mortar, shall be evenly spread 
over the top and roadway face of the curb to a thick- 
ness of one-eighth (%) of an inch and over the sur- 
face of the gutters to a thickness of one (1) inch, so 
as to insure a smooth and even surface on the ex- 
posed surfaces of the combined curb and gutter after 
being evenly troweled and finished with a broom. 

The curb shall be seven (7) inches thick and the 
height at the back shall vary from sixteen (16) 
inches at the catchbasin inlets to ten (10) inches at

a fifty (50) mesh sieve and shall contain not more 
than five (5) per cent of loam. 

The limestone screenings used in making concrete 
for the concrete foundation shall be made from the 
best quality of limestone, free from dust, dirt and 
other impurities, and shall be graded so that not less 
than ninety-five (95) per cent can pass a one-fourth 
( % ) inch screen. 

The limestone, slag or other stone equivalent in 
quality for concrete purposes used in making the 
concrete for the concrete foundation shall be of the 
best quality of each of the respective materials to be 
used, clean, free from dust, and graded so that one 
hundred (100) per cent can pass through a ring of

inch, inside diameter. 

The Portland cement used in this improvement 
shall be ground so that ninety-two (92) per cent can 
pass through a one hundred (100) mesh sieve, and 
shall be of such quality that briquettes made of a 
mortar composed of a proper amount of clean water, 
one (1) part of said Portland cement and three (3) 
parts of torpedo sand, or three (3) parts of limestone 
screenings shall have, at the expiration of seven days, 
an ultimate tensile strength of at least two hundred 
(200) pounds per square inch, being exposed to the 
air for one (1) day and then submerged in water for 
six (6) days. 

The sand used in making the mixture for the 
binder course and the mixture for the wearing course 
shall be clean, hard-grained, free from foreign mat-

Levigated stone shall be construed to mean, for 
the purpose of this ordinance, levigated limestone, 
other levigated stone equivalent to levigated lime- 
stone for paving purposes, said Portland cement, or 
other finely divided mineral matter self contained in 
the refined asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement, for the mixture for the binder course and 
the mixture for the wearing course, shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude native solid asphalt is used and 
requires refining it shall be heated to a temperature 
of not over four hundred and fifty (450) degrees 
Fahrenheit until all water and light oils have been 
driven off, at least ninety-eight and one-half (98%) 
per cent of the bitumen contained in the said refined 
asphalt which is soluble in cold carbon disulphide 
shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride, The 



refined asphalt used in making said asphalt cement 
may also be obtained by carefully distilling California 
or Mexican petroleum with steam agitation, at a 
temperature not to exceed seven hundred (700) de- 
grees Fahrenheit, until the refined asphalt has a 
consistency not softer than seven (7) millimeters 
penetration and not harder than three (3) millimeters 
penetration, the penetration being made with a No. 
2 needle, weighted with one hundred (100) grams 
acting for five (5) seconds, on the material being 
tested at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and one-half (98%) 
per cent of the said refined asphalt, so obtained, shall 
be soluble in carbon tetra chloride. If less than 
ninety-nine (99) per cent of the said refined asphalt 
is soluble in carbon tetra chloride, then the said re- 
fined asphalt shall yield, upon ignition, not more than 
fifteen (15) per cent of fixed carbon- if ninety-nine 
(99) per cent or more of the said refined asphalt is 
soluble in carbon tetra chloride, it shall yield, upon 
ignition, not more than eighteen (18) per cent of 
fixed carbon. When forty (40) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box two and 
one-quarter (2%) inches in diameter and is held at 
a temperature of three hundred and twenty-five 
(325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it 
shall have lost not over five (5) per cent by weight 
and the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
be not less than one-half of the penetration before 
such heating, said penetration being determined as 
herein prescribed. The said refined asphalt shall 
have a ductility of thirty (30) centimeters at five 
(5) millimeters penetration determined as herein 
prescribed, said ductility being determined by 
elongating a briquette, Dow form, of said refined 
asphalt at a uniform rate of one centimeter per 
second a:t a temperature of seventy-seven (77) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement may 
be a parafiin residuum, a semi-asphaltic residuum or 
an asphaltic residuum of petroleum which shall be 
tested with and found suitable to the refined asphalt 
to be used. Ninety-nine (99) per cent of the said 
flux shall be soluble in carbon tetra chloride. The 
paraffin residuum flux shall have a specific gravity of 
ninety-two (.92) hundredths to ninety-four (.94) 
hundredths at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit, as compared with water at seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit; and when tested in a New York 
State Closed Oil Tester it shall not flash below a 
temperature of three hundred and fifty (350) de- 
grees Fahrenheit; and when twenty (20) grams of 
the said paraffin residuum flux is heated in an un- 
covered tin box two and one-quarter (2%) inches 
in diameter and is held at a temperature of three 
hundred and twenty- five (325) degrees Fahrenheit 
for five (5) hours, then it shall not have lost over 
five (5) per cent by weight. The said semi-asphaltic 
residuum flux shall have the same general char- 
acteristics as the said paraffin residuum flux, except 
that it shall have a specific gravity of ninety-four 
(.94) hundredths to ninety-eight (.98) hundredths 
at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit, as compared with water at seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and it shall have a 
viscosity co-efficient, at two hundred twelve (212) 
degrees Fahrenheit, of less than sixteen (16) com- 
pared with water at sixty-eight (68) degrees Fahren- 
heit, as determined with an Engler viscosimeter. 
The said asphaltic residuum fiux shall have the same 
general characteristics as the said paraffm residuum 
fiux, except that it shall have a specific gravity of 
ninety-eight (.98) hundredths to one and ten (1.10) 
hundredths at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit, as compared with water at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and shall

have such properties that when the said asphaltic 
residuum flux is evaporated, at a temperature of not 
to exceed five hundred (500) degrees Fahrenheit, to 
a solid of five (5) millimeters penetration, deter- 
mined as herein prescribed, then, it shall have a 
ductility of thirty (30) centimeters, determined as 
herein prescribed. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from said re- 
fined asphalt or asphalts, and said flux if flux must be 
used, provided that mixtures of refined asphalts shall 
contain equal parts of each of the refined asphalts 
and that the said asphalt cement shall contain at least 
fifty (50) per cent, by weight, of refined asphalt or 
asphalts. Asphaltic or semi-asphaltic flux shall be 
used when the weight of flux required in making the 
asphalt cement prepared from refined native, solid 
asphalts exceeds by weight twenty-five (25) per cent 
of the asphalt cement. The said asphalt cement shall 
be made by mixing and heating the said refined 
asphalt and the said flux in a kettle at temperatures 
not lower than two hundred and fifty (250) degrees 
Fahrenheit and not higher than three hundred and 
seventy-five (375) degrees Fahrenheit. This mix- 
ture shall be thoroughly agitated, when hot, by 
steam, or mechanical means, until the said mixture 
has become homogeneous. The said asphalt cement 
shall have a penetration, determined as herein pre- 
scribed, of not less than three (3) millimeters and 
not more than ten (10) millimeters. When forty 
(40) grams of said asphalt cement is heated in an 
uncovered tin box two and one-quarter (2%) inches 
in diametf^r and held at a temperature of three hun- 
dred and twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for 
five (5; hours, then it shall not have lost more than 
five (5) per cent by weight and the penetration de- 
termined as herein prescribed, shall be not less than 
one-half of the penetration before such heating. A 
briquette, Dow form, of the said asphalt cement of 
the consistency as used in this improvement shall 
have a ductility, determined as herein prescribed, of 
not less than ten (10) centimeters. 

The concrete for the said concrete foundation 
shall be made by mixing one (1) part of said Port- 
land cement, three (3) parts of said torpedo sand or 
three (3) parts of said limestone screenings and 
seven (7) parts of said limestone, said slag or said 
other stone together with a proper amount of clean 
water, in a rotary batch mixer until the resulting 
concrete has been thoroughly mixed. The said con- 
crete shall then be spread upon the surface of the 
roadbed as prepared, and then shall be rammed until 
thoroughly compacted. The upper surface of said 
concrete foundation shall be parallel with and three 
and one-half (3%) inches below the upper surface 
of the finished pavement. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said gravel or 
said broken limestone, the said sand and the said 
asphalt cement. The said mixture shall contain, by 
weight, five (5) per cent of bitumen soluble in carbon 
disulphide, twenty-five (25) per cent of said sand 
and seventy (70) per cent of said gravel or said 
stone. The said mixture shall be spread on the said 
concrete foundation and while in a hot and plastic 
condition, shall be rolled to an even surface. The 
said binder course after having received its ultimate 
compression shall have a thickness of one and one- 
half (1%) inches and the upper surface shall be 
parallel with and two (2) inches below the upper 
surface of the finished pavement. 

The mixture for the wearing course shall be made 
by intimately mixing, while hot, the said sand, the 
said asphalt cement and the said levigated stone. 



The said sand and the said asphalt cement shall be 
healed separately to a temperature of three hundred 
(300) degrees Fahreaheit. While the said sand is at 
the said temperature the said levigated stone shall 
be intimately mixed with the said sand and then both 
shall be intimately mixed with the said asphalt 
cement at the said temperature. The said mixture 
shall be composed of bitumen soluble in carbon 
disulphide eleven and one-half (11.5) per cent; said 
levigated stone twelve (12) per cent; said sand 
which can pass through an eighty (80) mesh sieve 
cannot pass through a two hundred (200) mesh 
sieve twenty-five (25) per cent; said sand which can 
pass through a forty (40) mesh sieve and cannot 
pass through an eighty (80) mesh sieve thirty-eight 
(38) per cent; said sand which can pass through a 
ten (10) mesh sieve and cannot pass through a forty 
(40) mesh sieve twelve (12) per cent; said sand 
which can pass through a four (4) mesh sieve and 
cannot pass through a ten (10) mesh sieve one and 
one-half (1.5) per cent. The said mixture shall be 
spread, at a temperature of two hundred and eighty 
(280) degrees Fahrenheit, to an even surface and to 
such a depth that after having received its ultimate 
compression it will have a thickness of two (2) 
inches. The wearing course, while still hot and 
plastic, shall be rolled with a self propelled roller of 
five (5) tons weight. Natural hydraulic cement shall 
then be spread over the wearing course in such 
quantity that one (1) barrel of natural hydraulic 
cement shall cover one thousand (1,000) square yards 
of said wearing course. The said wearing course 
shall then be thoroughly compressed by rolling with 
a self propelled roller of ton (10) tons weight.

Direction for the Enforcement of the Ordinance 

Limiting the Number of Tag Days to Three

The Committee on Finance, to whom had been re- 
ferred (October 18, 1922) a resolution directing that no

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The City Council on June 28, 1921, 
passed an ordinance defining Tag Days on which it 
would be lawful for charitable organizations to so- 
licit upon the streets of the City of Chicago, funds 
for charitable purposes, and limiting Tag Days to 
three in number during any one year, these to be 
designated as "Tag Day for the Chicago Children's 
Benefit League," to be held in the fall of the year; 
"Tag Day for the Chicago Federation of Aged and 
Adult Charities," to be held in the spring of the 
year, and one other Tag Day in September for all 
other charitable organizations which may conform 
to the general terms of the ordinance and the regu- 
lations adopted by the Special Committee in charge; 
and 

Whereas, As a result of promiscuous tagging and 
the continued application for tag days for various 
and sundry purposes over which there was no sem- 



blance of public audit or control, the Tag Day ordi- 
nance of June 28, 1921, was passed; and 

Whereas, During the past summer there have 
been many Tag Days held, and some for purposes 
which would not come within the definition of char- 
itable purposes and for which no public accounting 
is made of the disposal of funds collected on sucn 
special Tag Days; and 

Whereas, The ordinance above referred to and 
the rules of the Special Committee are broad enough 
to permit all proper charitable organizations to par- 
ticipate; and « 

Whereas, The Frequent occurrence of Tag Days 
disgusts the charitably inclined in the community 
and seriously lessens contributions to those deserv- 
ing charities that everyone recognizes should be sup- 
ported, thereby greatly impairing the activities of 
established charity work; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That it is the sense of the City Council 
that the Tag Day ordinance of June 28, 1921, be en- 
forced in accordance with its provisions; and be it' 
further 

Resolved, That the Corporation Counsel and the 
Superintendent of Police be and they are hereby di- 
rected to issue no permits for Tag Days except as 
provided in the ordinance of June 28, 1921.

they are really the most expensive; therefore, 
be it •

be and it is hereby directed not to submit to the 
City Council in the future any ordinance provid- 
ing for the paving of any street or alley in the 
City of Chicago with asphaltic concrete, asphaltic

November 1, 1922. 



In the Matter of Exemption from the Payment of In- 
come Tax on Fees Paid by the City of Chicago to 
Building and Real Estate Experts. 

Alderman Richert moved to proceed to consideration 
of the report of the Committee on Finance in the mat- 
ter of exemption from the payment of income tax on 
fees paid by the City of Chicago to building- and real 
■ estate experts, deferred and published October 18, 1922, 
page 1110. 

The motion prevailed. 

Alderman Richert moved to concur in said report 
and to adopt said resolution. 

The motion prevailed, by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Coughlin. Kenna, Jackson, L. B. Anderson, 
Schwartz, Johntry, Richert, T. A. Hogan, Mulcahy, 
McDonough, Eaton, Furman, Woodhull, Govier, Mad- 
derom, McNichols, Rutkowski, Horan, Cepak, Cermak, 
Shaffer, Smith, Maypole, Olsen, Kaindl, Piotrowski, 
Czekala, Walkowiak, Devereux, Touhy, Powers, Franz,

sen, Armitage, Adamowski, Schlegel, Kovarik, O'Toole, 
Lynch, Moran, S. M. Hogan, Wilson, A. 0. Anderson, 
Garner, Toman, Clark — ^1. 

Nays — None. 

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The City Council of Chicago has 
noticed in the press a summary of a ruling by the 
department of internal revenue, whereby Frank 
H. Mesce, Austin J. Lynch, Edward C. Waller, Jr., 
Ernest H. Lyons and Arthur S. Merigold, alleged 
building and real estate experts, who were paid 
by the City of Chicago for their alleged services 
the sum of approximately $2,800,000 in the year 
1920, and who claim to have earned approximately 
$1,400,000 more for such services, are exempted 
from including the same in their income tax re- 
turns for such year; and 

Whereas, It appears that such ruling was based 
upon an affidavit of the president of the Board of 
Local Improvements, and upon an alleged five- 
year contract claimed to have been made with 
these alleged experts by the Board of Local Im- 
provements; and 

Whereas, The City Council of Chicago and certain 
taxpayers thereof have contended, and still con- 
tend, that the payment of such enormous sums to 
these experts was attended by the false represen- 
tation that the City Council had ordered or au- 
thorized the payment, whereas, on the contrary, 
the City Council had appropriated only the sum 
of $460,000.00 in payment thereof, and the payment 
in excess of said appropriation was in direct vio- 
lation of the civil and criminal statutes of the 
State of Illinois; and 

Whereas, It appears to the City Council of Chi- 
cago that such ruling may jeopardize the efforts 
to require these experts to make restitution and 
the efforts to prevent further enormous payments 
to them; now, therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the department of internal reve- 
nue be notified of the following facts: 

1. At the time of the retention of the services 
of these alleged experts, they were recommended 
by the president of the Board of Local Improve- 
ments on the ground that they were qualified for 
such services by reason of their experience and 
independent judgment. 



2. The president of the Board of Local Im- 
provements has since the retention of the services 
of these alleged experts stated to the Finance 
Committee of this Council that the method in 
which they performed their services was left to 
their independent judgment and discretion. 

3. The president of the Board of Local Im- 
provements has attempted to justify the payment 
of these enormous fees on the ground that it was 
necessary for the alleged experts to employ a large 
corps of assistants and a large office force, and he 
has stated several times to the Finance Commit- 
tee of this Council and to a sub-committee of the 
Finance Committee that he did not know who such 
assistants and office men were; what their work 
consisted of; what they were paid; how many of 
them there were; and, in fact, that it was nobody's 
business how the alleged experts performed their 
services so long as they obtained results. He fur- 
thermore stated to the aforementioned public 
bodies that he has never been in the office of the 
alleged experts; that he left to them the method 
of determining valuations, and that it was no more 
his business or the City's business what assistants 
and office men they required, than in the case of 
any other contractor. 

.4. Ernest H. Lyons, one of the alleged experts, 
has testified before the sub-committee of the 
Finance Committee of this Council that the assist- 
ants he hired and required was his own business, 
over which the City of Chicago and the Board of 
Local Improvements had no control, and that the 
reports made by such assistants were made to him 
and that he did not consider them the property of 
the City of Chicago, but considered them as his 
own property, which he would not produce before 
such sub-committee. 

5. All moneys paid to the alleged experts in 
excess of the amount appropriated by this Council 
were illegally paid and received. This Council 
does not know of any law which exempts from 
federal income taxes income so illegally and crim- 
inally obtained. 

6. The alleged contract claimed to have been 
made by the president of the Board of Local Im- 
provements with these alleged experts, providing 
for five years' exclusive services, is void and of 
no effect, as this Council, in its order of February 
5, 1920, only authorized the retention of the serv- 
ices of these experts "for such period of time dur- 
ing 1920 as may be necessary". 

7. It has come to the attention of this Council 
that the alleged experts did not devote their ex- 
clusive time to the City's work. 

8. That all of the twenty thousand City em- 
ployes of the City of Chicago are paid regularly 
either monthly or semi-monthly, and their names 
all appear on pay-roll sheets; this being the only 
method by which the City employes are paid. All 
other persons are paid liy vouchers, and this is 
the only method by which the so-called real estate 
and building experts were paid. 

9. The alleged contract dated March 5, 1920, en- 
tered into between Michael J. Faherty, president of 
the Board of Local Improvements, pretending to 
act for the City of Chicago, and said experts, was 
in the form of a letter, and was not made a public 
record or a part of the public records of the City 
of Chicago, but on the contrary was carefully hid- 
den by said Michael J. Faherty and by said so- 
called real estate and building experts and kept 
among their private papers for a period of about 



November 1, 1922. 



UNFINISHED BUSINESS. 



1247 



one year after said alleged contract was supposed 
to have been entered into. 

10. No authority was ever given by the City 
Council of the City of Chicago, nor by the Finance 
Committee of the Council, authorizing said Michael 
J. Faherty to enter into said alleged contract for 
five years, nor was any such authority asked, and 
no appropriation was made by the Finance Com- 
mittee for any such alleged contract, as is re- 
quired by the statutes of the State of Illinois; and 
in the opinion of counsel for the sub-committee of 
the Finance Committee, employed to investigate 
the expert fees, such alleged contract is null and 
void and of no legal force or effect whatsoever; 
be it 

Resolved, That in the opinion of the City Coun- 
cil the ruling above mentioned should be reopened; 
and that the Council, the Finance Committee of 
the Council, and the sub-committee of the Finance 
Committee be directed to assist the internal reve- 
nue department in ascertaining the true facts; and 
be it further 

Resolved, That the Clerk transmit a copy of this 
resolution to the head of the internal revenue de- 
partment, Washington, D. C.

Report of Investigation of Water Shortage in the 
Village of Stickney. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Department of Public Works,] 

Bureau op Engineering, I 

Chicago, October 31, 1922.J 

To the Honorable the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, Chicago, III.: 

Gentlemen — Referring to request of the Village of 
Stickney for water supply from the City of Chicago. 
I wish to advise that this matter has been investigated 
in accordance with Council order passed at the meet- 
ing of October 4, 1922, see Council Proceedings of 
that date, page 1011, and in our opinion it is in- 
advisable to supply this village with city water at 
this time on account of the shortage which exists in 
the section of the city adjacent to the village in ques- 
tion. 

It is possible for connections between the Chicago 
water system and the village mains to be made at 
43rd street and Cicero avenue or at 52nd street and 
Mobile avenue. The water pressure at these loca- 
tions is very low and approaches zero during sprink- 
ling hours. This condition will continue to exist 
until the proposed pumping station is in operation 
in the vicinity of 39th street and Western avenue. 

It would be very expensive to the Village of Stick- 
ney to obtain water from the City of Chicago as it 
would be necessary for it to extend its water main 
across three railroad rights of way and three canals, 
namely, the I. & M. Canal, the Drainage Canal and 
the Ogden Ditch. 

It would, however, be more practicable and less 
expensive for the village to obtain water from 
either the Town of Cicero which has a main in 
39th street between 60th and 61st avenues, or the 
City of Berwyn which has a main in Oak Park ave- 
nue at 39th street. 

Yours very truly,

In the Matter of the Sale of By-products of the 
Municipal Reduction Plant. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion and report, which were ordered published and 
placed on file: 

Department of Public Works,] 

Commissioner's Office, I 

Chicago, November 15, 1922.J 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and the City Council: 

Gentlemen — For the information of your Honor- 
able Body, I herewith transmit communication and 
report of Eugene Vollmar, General Foreman in 
Charge of the Bureau of Waste Disposal, dated No- 
vember 8, 1922. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Chas. 'R. Francis, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 



Chicago, November 8, 1922. 

Hon. Charles R. Francis, Commissioner of Public 
Works: 

Devvr Sir — My attention has been called to recent 
newspaper articles which quote Alderman Eaton of 
the City Waste Commission to the effect that the 
Municipal Reduction Plant is not receiving full 
market value for its by-products. I had a personal 
talk with Alderman Eaton on Friday, November 3rd, 
when he made certain statements pertaining to the 
operation of the Municipal Reduction Plant of this 
city as compared with that of the cities of Cleveland 
and Columbus, which were not according to the facts. 

I have received copies of contracts and other data 
from W. J. Downey, which prove that -the state- 
ments of Alderman Eaton are incorrect. The fol- 
lowing is a synopsis of the documents: 

The City of Cleveland entered into a contract for 
the sale of garbage tankage on November 7, 1921, 
this contract covering 1,850 tons at $4.25 per ton. 
I am advised by Mr. Downey that this order is still 
uncompleted, and that the tankage contracted for 
was -shipped during the present year. This proves 
that the City of Cleveland sold tankage at $4.25 
per ton, while the City of Chicago did not re- 
ceive less than $5.00 per ton for any tankage de- 
livered this year. The Cleveland garbage tankage 
averaged 3.32 per cent ammonia, which is about 
.5 per cent higher than Chicago garbage tankage. 
The Cleveland tankage analyzed better than 9 per 
cent bone phosphate, while the Chicago tankage 
shows from 4 to 5 per cent. The difference in 
analysis is brought about because the Cleveland 
plant receives all the hotel and restaurant garbage, 
while we receive only the household garbage in 
Chicago. This difference in quality of tankage 
should bring about $2.00 more per ton for Cleve- 
land tankage than for the Chicago product. 

The City of Cleveland entered into a contract for 
the sale of 500,000 pounds of garbage grease on 
March 28, 1921, at a price of $1.75 per hundred 
pounds. The records show that the City of Chi- 
cage received $2.75 per hundred pounds for the 
grease production during the first six months of 
1921. 

In my conversation with Alderman Eaton, he 
made the statement that the City of Columbus 
sold garbage grease on a flat basis. I have re- 
ceived from L. C. Doggett Company of Chicago 
copy of the Columbus specifications for the pur- 
chase of garbage grease, bids upon which were 
opened on September 27, 1922. These specifica- 
tions provide that the bidders shall state the price 
per hundred pounds f. o. b. cars at the Municipal 
Reduction Plant, Columbus, Ohio, and whether it 
is flat or on a basis of 97 per cent saponifiable. I 
have a letter from' the L. C. Doggett Company stat- 
ing that their sales for Columbus have all been on 
the basis of 97 per cent saponifiable and, as far 
as they know, this has always been their manner of 
selling. 

It is. a well know fact that the City of Chicago 
grease analyses from 90 to 92 per cent, there being 
from 8 to 10 per cent impurities in our grease. 
This is because of the fact that we have a differ- 
ent process of manufacture. The Cleveland and 
Columbus plants cook their garbage first, recover- 
ing as much grease as possible, and then put the 
balance through the extraction process. The dif- 
ference in the analysis of Chicago grease and that 
of the cities referred to accounts for about half 
of a cent in the value of same per pound.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL. 



November 15, 1922. 



Alderman Eaton is also quoted as stating that 
the Chicago Reduction Plant will lose $600,000 this 
year. While the records show that the cost of 
operation of this plant for the year 1921 was 
$669,000, the manufacture of garbage grease and 
tankage since June 1st of this year will result in 
a reduction in the cost of operation of about 
$150,000, or a net cost of $519,000 for the year 
1922. This reduction in the net cost of operation 
has been accomplished by the manufacture of by- 
products since June 1st and by the economical ad- 
ministration of this plant. The plant has been 
closed 25 days, outside of Sundays and legal holi- 
days, when the amount of material on hand made 
it possible to do so. 

I would suggest that the above information be 
brought to the attention of the City Waste Commis- 
sion at its next meeing, in order to advise the mem- 
bers of this committee of the facts concerning the 
operation of the Municipal Reduction Plant. 

Yours very truly,

one-half (1%) inches, upon which shall be relaid 
the present granite block pavement. 

The blocks shall be so laid as to break joints 
in alternate courses, each course, so far as prac- 
ticable, to be of uniform depth and width. 

When thus laid, the pavement shall immediately be 
covered and swept with screened, dry roofing gravel, 
free from sand or loam or pebbles smaller than one- 
sixteenth (1/16) inch or larger than one-half (%) 
inch. The amount spread shall be sufficient to fill 
all the joints in the pavement; the blocks then to 
be rammed to a firm and unyielding bed and to a 
uniform surface. 

After the gravel having been settled by the ram- 
ming of the blocks, the remainder of the joints 
shall be filled with paving pitch which is the direct 
result of the distillation of "straight run" coal tar. 
Said pitch shall be applied on the work at a tempera- 
ture of not less than three hundred (300) degrees 
Fahrenheit. Immediately after applying the paving 
pitch and while it is still hot, the entire surface of

and at once spread upon the surface of said road- 
beds and thoroughly compacted by ramming until 
free mortar appears on the surface. 

The surface of said layer of concrete shall be 
parallel with and five and one-half (5%) inches 
below the top of the granite blocks when laid as 
hereinafter described 

Upon the concrete foundation above specified shall 
be spread a layer of torpedo sand in such quantity 
as to insure when compacted a uniform depth of one 
and one-half (1%) inches. 

Upon said layer of torpedo sand shall be placed 
granite blocks of the best quality of uniform tex- 
ture, without lamination or stratification, and free 
from an excess of mica or feldspar; the dimensions 
of said blocks shall be four (4) inches in width,

or Mexican petroleum with steam agitation, at a 
temperature not to exceed seven hundred (700) de- 
grees Fahrenheit, until the refined asphalt has a 
consistency not softer than seven (7) millimeters 
penetration and not harder than three (3) millimeters 
penetration, the penetration being made with a No. 
2 needle, weighted with one hundred (100) grams

tested at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) de- 
grees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and one-half (98%) 
per cent of the said refined asphalt,' so obtained, shall 
be soluble in carbon tetra chloride. If less than 
ninety-nine (99) per cent of the said refined asphalt 
is soluble in carbon tetra chloride, then the said re- 
fined asphalt shall yield, upon ignition, not more than 
fifteen (15) per cent of fixed carbon; if ninety-nine 
(99) per cent or more of the said refined asphalt is 
soluble in carbon tetra chloride, it shall yield, upon 
ignition, not more than eighteen (18) per cent of 
fixed carbon. When forty (40) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box two and 
one-quarter (2%) inches in diameter and is held at 
a temperature of three hundred and twenty-five 
(325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it 
shall have lost not over five (5) per cent by weight 
and the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
be not less than one-half of the penetration before 
such heating, said penetration being determined as

hetein prescribed. The said refined asphalt shall 
have a ductility of thirty (30) centimeters at five 
(5) millimeters penetration determined as herein 
prescribed, said ductility being determined by elon- 
gating a briquette, Dow form, of said refined asphalt 
at a uniform rate of one centimeter per second at a 
temperature of seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement may 
be a paraffin residuum, a semi-asphaltic residuum or 
ail asphaltic residuum of petroleum which shall be 
tested with and found suitable to the refined asphalt 
to be used. Ninety-nine (99) per cent of the said 
flux shall be soluble in carbon tetra chloride. The 
paraffin residuum flux shall have a specific gravity of 
ninety-two (.92) hundredths to ninety-four (.94) 
hundredths at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahren- 
heit, as compared with water at seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit; and when tested in a New York 
State Closed Oil Tester it shall not flash below a 
temperature of three hundred and fifty (350) de- 
grees Fahrenheit; and when twenty (20) grams of 
the said paraffin residuum flux is heated in an un- 
covered tin box two and one-quarter (2%) inches 
in diameter and is held at a temperature of three 
hundred and twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit 
for five (5) hours, then it shall not have lost over 
five (5) per cent by weight. The said semi-asphaltic 
residuum flux shall have the same general char- 
acteristics as the said paraffin residuum flux, except 
that it shall have a specific gravity of ninety-four 
(.94) hundredths to ninety-eight (.98) hundredths 
at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit, as compared with water at seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and it shall have a 
viscosity coefficient, at two hundred twelve (212) 
degrees Fahrenheit, of less than sixteen (16) com- 
pared with water at sixty-eight (68) degrees Fahren- 
heit, as determined with an Engler viscosimeter. 
The said asphaltic residuum flux shall have the same 
general characteristics as the said paraflin residuum 
flux, except that it shall have a specific gravity of 
ninety-eight (.98) hundredths to one and ten (1.10) 
hundredths at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) 
degrees Fahrenheit, as compared with water at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and shall 
have such properties that when the said asphaltic 
residuum flux is evaporated, at a temperature of not 
to exceed five hundred (500) degrees Fahrenheit, to 
a solid of five (5) millimeters penetration, deter- 
mined as herein prescribed, then, it shall have a 
ductility of thirty (30) centimeters, determined as 
herein prescribed. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from said re- 
fined asphalt or asphalts, and said flux if flux must 
be used, provided that mixtures of refined asphalts 
shall contain equal parts of each of the refined as- 
phalts and that the said asphalt cement shall contain 
at least fifty (50) per cent, by weight, of refined as- 
phalt or asphalts. Asphaltic or semi-asphaltic flux 
shall be used when the weight of flux required in 
making the asphalt cement prepared from refined 
native, solid asphalts exceeds by weight twenty-five 
(25) per cent of the asphalt cement. The said as- 
phalt cement shall be made by mixing and heating 
the said reflned asphalt and the said flux in a kettle 
at temperatures not lower than two hundred and fifty 
(250) degrees Fahrenheit and not higher than three 
hundred and seventy-five (375) degrees Fahrenheit. 
This mixture shall be thoroughly agitated, when hot, 
by steam, or mechanical means, until the said mix- 
ture has become homogeneous. The said asphalt ce- 
ment shall have a penetration, determined as herein 
prescribed, of not less than three (3) millimeters and 
not more than ten (10) millimeters. When forty 



(40) grams of said asphalt cement is heated in an 
uncovered tin box two and one-quarter (2%) inches 
in diameter and held at a temperature of three hun- 
dred and twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for 
five (5) hours, then it shall not have lost more than 
five (5) per cent by weight and the penetration de- 
termined as herein prescribed, shall be not less than 
one-half of the penetration before such heating. A 
briquette, Dow form, of the said asphalt cement of 
the consistency as used in this improvement shall 
have a ductility, determined as herein prescribed, of 
not less than ten (10) centimeters. 

The concrete for the said concrete foundation 
shall be made by mixing one (1) part of said Port- 
land cement, three (3) parts of said torpedo sand or 
three (3) parts of said limestone screenings and 
seven (7) parts of said limestone, said slag or said 
other stone together with a proper amount of clean 
water, in a rotary batch mixer until the resulting 
concrete has been thoroughly mixed. The said con- 
crete shall then be spread upon the surface of the 
roadbed as prepared, and then shall be rammed until 
thoroughly compacted. The upper surface of said 
concrete foundation shall be parallel with and three 
and one-half (3%) inches below the upper surface 
of the finished pavement. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said gravel or 
said broken limestone, the said sand and the said 
asphalt cement. The said mixture shall contain, by 
weight, five (5) per cent of bitumen soluble in carbon 
disulphide, twenty- five (25) per cent of said sand 
and seventy (70) per cent of said gravel or said 
stone. The said mixture shall be spread on the said 
concrete foundation and while in a hot and plastic 
condition, shall be rolled to an even surface. The 
said binder course after having received its ultimate 
compression shall have a thickness of one and one- 
half (1%) inches and the upper surface shall be 
parallel with and two (2) inches below the upper 
surface of the finished pavement. 

The mixture for the wearing course shall be made 
by intimately mixing, while hot, the said sand, the 
said asphalt cement and the said levigated stone. 
The said sand and the said asphalt cement shall be 
heated separately to a temperature of three hundred 
(300) degrees Fahrenheit. While the said sand is at 
the said temperature the said levigated stone shall 
be intimately mixed with the said sand and then both 
shall be intimately mixed with the said asphalt 
cement at the said temperature. The said mixture 
shall be composed of bitumen soluble in carbon 
disulphide eleven and one-half (11.5) per cent; said 
levigated stone twelve (12) per cent; said sand 
which can pass through an eighty (80) mesh sieve 
cannot pass through a two hundred (200) mesh 
sieve twenty-five (25) per cent; said sand which can 
pass through a forty (40) mesh sieve and cannot 
pass through an eighty (80) mesh sieve thirty-eight 
(38) per cent; said sand which can pass through a 
ten (10) mesh sieve and cannot pass through a forty 
(40) mesh sieve twelve (12) per cent; said sand 
which can pass through a four (4) mesh sieve and 
cannot pass through a ten (10) mesh sieve one and 
one-half (1.5) per cent. The said mixture shall be 
spread, at a temperature of two hundred and eighty 
(280) degrees Fahrenheit, to an even surface and to 
such a depth that after having received its ultimate 
compression it will have a thickness of two (2) 
inches. The wearing course, while still hot and 
plastic, shall be rolled with a self propelled roller of 
five (5) tons weight. Natural hydraulic cement shall 
then be spread over the wearing course in such 
quantity that one (1) barrel of natural hydraulic 
cement shall cover one thousand (1,000) square yards

tire nation have of late been horrified by tlae dis- 
closure of extravagance, reckless waste, and mis- 
use of funds which Grand Jury investigations 
brand as criminal; and indictments have been re- 
turned against members of the Board of Edu- 
cation, its employes, and others who have had 
business with the Board, and the work of the 
Grand Jury is not yet completed; and 

Whereas, The fundamentals of our govern- 
ment, namely, the respect and obedience to the 
law, is taught to the American boy and girl from

the primary grade to the graduation from col- 
lege; and the teachers of our schools in impart- 
ing to the school child her ideal of good citizen- 
ship, points with pride to public officials whose 
characters are worthy examples for emulation; 
and 

Whereas, While indictment is not proof of 
guilt, all those members of the Board of Education 
who have been indicted on the charge of mis- 
using school funds have, by their own conduct, 
placed themselves in a situation where they no 
longer have a right to expect the confidence and 
respect of the children of the Chicago schools, its 
thousands of teachers, and the public; therefore, 
be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of Chicago, in 
the name of Chicago, its great school system, edu- 
cational institutions, its army of school children, 
and its teachers and educators, calls upon all 
members of the Board of Education, who have 
been indicted, to resign from said Board of Edu- 
cation and thus enable the Mayor of Chicago to 
appoint in their place others in whom the people 
trust and have faith in their ability and sincerity 
to rightfully discharge the duties of that office.

Railroad Shopmen's Relief Comjviittee,| 
Chicago, November 13, 1922!} 
Mr. Sheldon W. Govier, Alderman Ninth Ward, 

H3S0 Forrestville avenue, Chicago, Illinois. 

Dear Sir— I am instructed by the Railway Shop- 
men's Relief Committee to sincerely thank you and 
your colleagues who assisted you in the City Council 
m making the necessary arrangements in behalf of 
the Tag Day for the Striking Railway Shopmen and 
their families, which was held in Chicago on Mon- 
day, October 9, 1922. 

For your information and the information of the 
City Council, the receipts from said tag day were 
$9,157.49. 

This amount, which was far below our expec- 
tations, has been distributed amongst the various 
groups of the men who are still on strike and is 
being disbursed by committees who first ascertained 
the actual needs of the striker making application 
for financial aid. 

Notwithstanding the inclement weather, which of 
course interfered with the success of said tag day, 
we. are grateful to those who so ably assisted us. 
We realized that our inability to secure sufficient 
volunteers amongst the women folks of our own 
people necessarily interfered with the receipts of 
our tag day. 

Will you kindly convey to the members of the 
City Council at your next meeting our appreciation 
of their support in sanctioning the tag day for the 
striking railway shopmen. 

Assuring you of our warmest personal regards 
and thanking you for your personal interest and 
efforts in our behalf, I am 

Very sincerely yours, 

(Signed) Edward Osborn, 

Secretary-Treasurer, Raihuay Shopmen's 
Relief Committee.

made with the above materials are the least ex- 
pensive, yet in the long run, considering the dura- 
bility and desirability of same, experience shows 
they are really the most expensive; therefore,

ing for the paving of any street or alley in the 
City of Chicago with asphaltic concrete, asphaltic
